Dating a depressed woman
Healthy self-esteem is a prerequisite for healthy relationships.
From my personal experiences, and my years spent writing about relationships, I’ve learned that poor self-esteem is the number one cause of unhealthy relationships, as well as the top relationship killer.
Only insecure people secretly feel that they are unworthy and feel the need to hide this by bragging about their achievements or talking themselves up.
A woman who reveals herself gradually, carefully peeling back the layers over time, is significantly more attractive than a woman who lays it all out there.
Confident people don’t abandon parts of themselves in order to have a relationship.
They bring their fully formed self into the relationship and if the guy wants something else, or something more, they leave.
Confident women don’t take it personally when a guy doesn’t want a romantic relationship.
The fact is, you can only let in as much love from the outside as you feel on the inside.If you don’t feel good about yourself, you will never truly believe that someone else can love you and you will constantly be on the lookout for the other shoe to drop, for the guy you care about to leave, thus validating the fact that you are unworthy of love.Poor self-worth is what traps us in bad relationships, what sabotages new relationships, and what causes us to feel so devastated and broken when a relationship ends.When a girl is insecure, however, and a guy leaves, she spirals.She may obsess, analyze, and replay every interaction in an attempt to uncover what she did wrong. Healthy personal boundaries and high self-esteem go hand in hand.
